When Guru ordains, He sustains!

Guru Purnima is such a rare day, when Guru accepts bhiksha and burns the karmas of the disciples. Guru Bhakti – authenticity in your relationship with the Guru – is his message for Guru Purnima 2015. To those who consider him as Guru, he declared that – “I want you to have the inner image of SHIVOHAM (Shiva I am).” Whoever does that, he as Sada Shiva, committed to give the boon of LIVING SHIVOHAM. If the inspiration and energy of the  

Guru Purnima 2015 message—Guru Bhakti. Understand, understand this word – Guru Bhakti. It is not just putting few flowers in His feet, or doing some small puja, of course, that is a symbolic representation, but the real Guru Bhakti, understand, being authentic to Guru. 

Let me explain that word – Guru Bhakti, being authentic to Guru. Look into your inner image, see how much of your inner image is influenced by Guru’s presence in your life. Look into your inner image, see in how much you are still stuck, with your old stupid identity and inner image, how much the Guru has influenced, the Guru’s presence has influenced and how much of your idea about you as you has changed.  Continue reading “When Guru ordains, He sustains!”

Living Advaitha – X

…continued from Living Advaitha IX

Listen, from today, we will start moving towards Completion.  The first step you should take is, listen, now you wrote all the incompletions.  It can be as less as twenty-five, thirty, or as huge as one-thousand, two-thousand.  Now decide from this moment this incompletions will not have power over your decision or cognition.  Listen.  Understand the meaning of this word.  Even till you complete, these incompletions cannot have power over your cognition, your decision-making.  You can sit and complete all these day by day, one by one.

 See it’s like a elephants; I have seen temple elephants eating.  They will catch hold of a huge bunch of sugarcanes.  They will eat the sugarcane one by one, or two-three.  But, till they complete eating, till they eat also they will not allow anybody else to come and touch the sugarcanes.  Once they declare it is theirs, it is theirs!  They may be slowly eating, or not eating, they may eat even tomorrow, day-after-tomorrow, but no one can touch it!  Same way, you may complete tomorrow or day-after-tomorrow, but those incompletions cannot have power over you, be very clear!

Declare Completion NOW!  You know all this is incompletions. Understand, Completion works more with your conscious decision. Completion works more with your conscious decision.

Completion is more a conscious decision, less a technique. Pranayama, Yoga, all of them are more a technique, less a conscious decision. Completion more conscious decision, less technique.  Means, your decision plays a major role in completing than actual technique. You just decide now you are complete….over!

I never did in my life sitting and reliving, going through or looking at the mirror twenty-four hours.  I never did all these things.  Simply my Masters showed me, ‘Hey, this is incompletion!  Drop it.’  Over!

So, it is your decision that plays major role. See this penning down is like a identification.  Now what you penned down, even if it is twenty-five page, you should paste it next to your bed.  And every day for next few days, you should read that and tell yourself, ‘I am complete with all these.’  After a few days, you will be bored to read them, because they have no more power over you.  Then you can tear them and put it in the dustbin.  You should feel bored to read your incompletions; then you are COMPLETE.  You should feel, ‘What is this?  This looks like somebody else had all this!  Why am I reading?’

See when I speak to some of the people come to me for healing. Recently, some people came to me for healing, psychological suffering.  They came to India from both side Muslim countries after being tortured.  And you know worst thing, it is not that only Hindus are tortured in Bangladesh and Pakistan; many Muslims are tortured and they run away to India for a peaceful life.  So some of them came to attend the satsang and have the blessing.  When I listened to their problems and the deep – I am honestly telling you, with all my compassion and love for that soul, I put my hand on them and attended to them, healed them, but for a moment I thought, ‘Oh God!  Thank God I was born in Bharat.  Let us keep this Bharat alive!’  Because I can’t even imagine this amount of suffering can be put into people.  I was so shocked!

Same way, I have seen some of the Sri Lankan Tamils who moved to Toronto and Malaysia, even in Tamil Nadu, when they come for healing, ask for healing, Oh God, when I put my hand on them and try to heal, the amount of pain!  Only then you will understand all your incompletions are foolishness!  Because you don’t have suffering, you just create suffering. If you have gone through the real torture in the life, you will not torture yourself, because you are too busy in handling the real torture.  Most of the time, the torture we create for ourselves is just because no work, like entertainment you start creating!

Understand all the incompletions you wrote should look like meaningless.  Till then go on reading it every day and declare Completion.  When you feel some of them you don’t even remember them anymore, you can scratch them.  I wanted all of you to do this very sincerely. One side, the authentic inner-image, outer-image, life-image, others-image; the other side, all the incompletions you are supposed to complete to achieve that authenticity. This is the process for Authenticity. Continue reading “Living Advaitha – X”

Living Advaitha VI

..continued Living Advaitha Process – V

I will expand on The New Identity.

 Please understand, I’ll just recap the yesterday’s instruction first:

  •  Penning down the inner-image you want to create in an elaborate way.
  •  Penning down the outer-image you wanted to show.
  •  Penning down how you want others to perceive you – others-image.
  •  Penning down the life-image – how you are perceiving, you wanted to perceive  life and others.

 Elaborately pen down all these four images in a very detailed way which your teamily can understand.

 I wanted to define this word also:” Team + Family = Teamily”.  I have created so many technical terms now, the new people,  new visitors always feel at loss, because so many new Sanskrit words, technical terms.

 Pen down such a way that your whole teamily understands your definition of inner-image, outer-image, others-image and life-image.  Then next, ask your teamily to suggest to you what all the incompletions you need to complete to achieve the true identity you want to create.  You describe what is the identity you want to create to your teamily.  Now your teamily can suggest, your teamily can give you the feedback because the others-image and life-image is directly dependent on your teamily.  Your inner-image and outer-image is dependent on you.  The others-image, the completion of others-image and life-image is dependent on your teamily.  Your teamily has to be a co-creator for your others-image and life-image.  Let them give the suggestions – what all the completions you are supposed to do for you to co-create, for them to be a co-creator, for you to co-create the authentic inner-image, outer-image, others-image, life-image you want to create.

 And today, after getting the feedback from all of them, you sit and contemplate, come to the final structure.  Please understand, today you will come to the final, complete conclusion what is the authentic inner-image you want to create, outer-image you want to project, others-image you want to create and life-image you want to have  and all the incompletions you need to complete.  For example, you want to have the image that everyone should tell you are a great Yogi, every morning four o’clock you wake up and do Yoga; you want to have that image.  Now the problem is, you can’t get up.  You need alarm three times and three people to wake you up.  Then what to do?  Pen down, you have to complete with your sleeping pattern.  Sometimes you may be carrying deep resistance towards life  the reason for your withdrawal and celebrating sleep more than the body requires it, understand?  Sleeping more than six hours for any healthy adult means you are celebrating sleep.  Look in.  May be you are using it as an alternative to create your dreams, alternative to experience Completion.

 Understand, all your dreams are a temporary method of experiencing Completion.  You try to experience Completion in a temporary way.  Like a kid, if he wants to drive a car, he can’t get a real car; so he gets a toy car and plays with it and experiences certain temporary Completion.  Same way, when you feel life is too big for you, you create dreams and experience temporary Completions. Maybe, if you are celebrating temporary Completion, you will be sleeping more than required; you will be celebrating the sleep. Continue reading “Living Advaitha VI”

Living Advaitha – V

…continued fromLiving Advaitha IV

 It is Authenticity  makes you  man.  Neither the birth nor the growth of your body, or the growth of your wealth makes you a man.  It is Authenticity which makes you a man.

Please listen, all sufferings, all sufferings – when I say “all”, I mean capital letters “A-L-L” – all sufferings is because you forget your identity again and again and again.  All the good things are showered on you when you become authentic.  Again and again aligning yourself to Authenticity is “Tapas”.

From yesterday, so many participants of Living Advaitha process, participants of Living Advaitha process have started posting in the Facebook about their inner-image, outer-image, others-image and life-image.

“Inner-image” is the idea you carry about yourself inside you.  “Outer-image” is the way you project yourself. “Others-image” is how others perceive you, for which you are responsible.  “Life-image” is how you perceive others and life.

So many participants who are participating in the Living Advaitha process, the teamily process through Facebook have posted.  I wanted you to understand this one thing:  When you are putting your inner-image and outer-image don’t try to describe in just one word.  Some of the people have just put “Shivoham”, “Shivoham”, “Shivoham”, “Shivoham” for all the four. Understand, what do you know about Shiva?  Describe the inner-image, inner-image you wanted to have.  Even if you defined it overall under the title “Shivoham”, describe what you understand as “Shivoham”, because now whatever you describe as your inner-image, anything other than that if it is sitting inside you, it has to be completed and dropped.  So the article title can be “Shivoham”but the article has to be written detailed way.

When you write inner image – Shivoham describe the detailed qualities, what you think as Shiva?  Please listen.  You will not know Shiva as on now, but at least pen down what you think as Shiva; let us complete all the incompletions other than your perception of Shiva.  For example, if you perceive Shiva all-powerful, all-knowing, always compassionate, so now you have to complete with your ignorance, powerlessness, all-powerlessness, all-ignorance and all-violence.  You have to complete and drop them.  Then don’t think you will get only the three qualities of Shiva.  Once you finish completing few incompletions, all the qualities of Mahadeva which you imagined and not imagined will break open as if the floodgates were open inside your system.

When you describe your inner-image should be like Shiva, what you think as Shiva, describe that.  Somebody wrote their inner-image should be like eternally enlightened. Yes, great!  What you describe as eternally enlightened, write your definition.  Why you know?  If you describe some two-three qualities which you think as enlightenment quality, or Shiva’s quality and complete with all the incompletions and drop, really the floodgate of Shiva’s energy will open in your system. You may describe Shiva as all-knower, all-powerful, omnipresent.  Shiva himself may be having thousand qualities.  You may be describing only three qualities.  But that three qualities, whatever incompletions you have about that three qualities, if you complete and drop them, don’t think only that three qualities will open up in you; it will open the floodgates where all the qualities of Mahadeva will start expressing through you!  Because, listen to this logic:  There is a huge dam.  There are now dams which are one kilometre in length.  In the modern-day, even twenty kilometres length dams we are building.  Even if it is one kilometre length dam to release the whole flood water you don’t need to break the whole one kilometre dam.  Just poke one hole into the dam.  One hole is enough.  The whole flood will destroy the dam and come out.  Same way, if you poke one hole into your thick ignorance, the “apasmara” in your thick forgetfulness.
